Welcome to my world – it consists of husband, daughters, grandchildren, one 10 month old Golden Retriever named Isabella, traveling and golf. My passion is hand dyeing fabrics, art quilts and art garments. I love color and random piecing – I like to see a design develop as I sew and cut – I also like the raw edge applique using free form method and finding fun things to use in or on the fabric. My latest piece has deer fencing incorporated into it. I use beads, leather, silks, cotton plus other good thing.
Living in the mountains in Northern California offer a lot of inspiration and sometimes gives a challenge as to how to give the impression of what my mind sees. Here is one of my new pieces.
Glorious Seasons in 26″ x 29″ and is made using the raw edge method. I used beads, mostly hand dyed cottons, leather and black canvas. It traveled to Finland for a gallery show in June and had to fit into a 27″x18″ suitcase and could only be folded once. It presently is hanging in a gallery in a local winery.
Have a couple of new pieces but need to take pictures so will add more soon. Bye for now. Sandy
